Archive: Science Update: Primates in a Changing World, May 5, 2022

Primates and other species in the tropics are experiencing many changes, including climate change, habitat loss, and species extinction. In this web seminar we will examine how primates are studied in the wild, how primates experience changes in their environments, and how we can use scientific inquiry to conserve them.  Join us as we travel digitally to tropical forests in Indonesia and South America to learn more about these charismatic species.

All individuals receive a certificate of participation and 100 NSTA activity points for attending the live seminar and completing the end-of-program survey. A certificate of participation is not awarded for watching the recorded version of the program.

We invite you to register for upcoming web seminars at NSTA.
